Thankful Thursday - The Holidays Have Begun

Last Saturday we hosted our annual Hanukkah party (yes, we know it was early, but it was the weekend that worked for our family).

Uncle Chris arrived with gifts!

The 3 waiting patiently

Phod making the first choice

He picked the polar bear 

Emma immediately stole the bear

Hailey took the seal

Phod was sad that Emma took his bear but was too polite to just take it back

Phod got a penguin

Everyone with a toy, sure the other's toys are better!

    BOL... what fun seeing you all treasuring your own toys, yet eyeing up the others. I expect there will be some lovenswap going on ... HUgs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  2. oh that penguin is much better than the bear... bears sleep during da winter and da penguin never sleeps and plays with you all the time

  3. we had three dogs at one time in the past, all of them are now deceased, but toy time was a challenge with each wanting which ever the other had, and we bought the same things 3 times.

  4. Squeaky toys for everyone!!! That's great! Did you pups take the stuffing and squeakers out yet?

  5. I bet you'll swap toys soon enough. We see your upside down tree and it's just beautiful!

  6. Phod, we think Emma will have to put 'your' bear down sometime....he he he...

  7. You got presents already? Don't complain!

  8. How cute! I'm not telling the Knuckleheads presents are being given out already-they'll be pestering me to 'open' theirs and I just got the house all super cleaned. LOL Don't need 'indoor snow confetti' just yet.

  9. Uncles are the best!!! WTG Phod early dog gets the funniest gift
    Hugs HiC

  10. BOL - it's the same way here. Mom can buy three of the exact same thing, and we always want the one someone else has.

    Happy Hannukkah.

    Woos - Lightning, Misty, and Timber

  11. Yep...the same thing happens here too BOL! We bet your party was a big success...we saw some of the nommy foodies your Man was making over on Facebark!!

  12. Happy early Hanukkah, friends! Toys are like that, sometimes. The one you don't have is the one you want the most! Have fun!

    Love and licks,

  13. At least there were enough toys for everyone. It looks like you had fun playing with them.

  14. What fun!! we do the same thing with our chew bones. The one the other has is always better

  15. Dear Handsome Phod,

    You are a true gentleman. I hope you snuck the polar bear back once Cousin Emma was done with it.
